I'm back y'all!!

Happy
my friends ♡

     I hope this finds you all doing well! I also hope that everyone had an awesome summer! I have missed my bloggy friends:) I have enjoyed keeping up via email/texts with many of you. I have heard of some great things, sad things, loss of loved ones, pregnancies, new homes, loss of jobs.....my thoughts & prayers are with you all! 

     Things around here have been nothing short of non-stop. Although I have been unjured from running which totally slowed me down for 12 weeks.(like to the bed for a few weeks) I had to halt my marrathon training. After numerous Ortho visits, MRIs & therapy sessions, a Chiroprator did some xrays and realized my pelivic bone (pelvis?) is lower in the left side & my L5 disc is sitting on my hip bone.....AHA...now we know why I have had fluid & been miserable for so long! I am actually going for my first walk/run this morning with my group. Praying for good things!! I also had surgery, Ablation, a few weeks ago. If anyone has thought about getting it, GO FOR IT!! I am so glad I did it. I have had no issues nor pain since leaving the hospital. I really enjoyed being FREE alllllll summer long and at the mercy of my children/husband:)  (when am I not??) Although I hate that I was so "immobile" for so long. They all reallllly stepped up and did their part PLUS a while lot more. I am so blessed!
     I started wrapping my Christmas gifts the last week of July:) Don't hate! I still have a ways to go on shopping. I am getting ready to plan a surpise 18th birthday party for my son in November. I am so excited, I can't wait!! We are taking a trip over Thanksgiving to Newport Beach, Cali- can't wait!! I'm more excited than Dog the Bounty Hunter is getting a new perm!

     My bambino's started school 4 weeks ago. My son is a senior & daughter a freshman. Ugh Where do the years go?? My son only takes 2 classes at school and is out at 11am. He also takes 2 college classes 2 nights a week. I love having him home at lunch each day:)  They are both doing AWESOME. All A's for both in all classes!

     My sweet Mr. finally finsihed up work in Tuscaloosa. He was home. We were enjoying being "all together" all the time....then New Jersey flooded. God bless them all. My heart & prayers go out to them. So, he is now in NJ inspecting flood claims. I miss my best friend :(

     Thank you to all my new followers! I see my # has increased since my last visit here:) Thanks for following along. I hope you will holla & link me so I can swing by! Thanks again to my old sweet followers for your thoughts, prayers, etc. Your emails checking in have meant so much-XoXo

As for me & my blog...

{semi}wordless wednesday will start back next week! yay!!!!  

Recipe Swap: I am up in the air about this one as there are so many recipe blogs & facebook pages for recipes. I am thinking of doing it once a month. Making it a HUGE one. Like, link as many as ya like type thing. I am open for your input. Let's plan one for Friday, Sept.30th. If there isn't a good turn out, I may just do away with it. (and just post recipes and I "create/recreate/destroy" them:)

Home Tour Tuesday: still taking ideas. Please share yours!! HTT will start back Tuesday, Sept. 20th. Theme: While you were away {what I did this summer} Did you paint a room? Build a deck? Sew new curtains? Well, show it to us y'all!

     While I was away, my blogoversay came! I posted a giveaway only to have Blogger act like brat! My entries weren't posting, although I was getting the email confirmations. So, I am reposting it TOMORROW! So, be sure to come back and enter!! Plus, it's a Vlog...you get to hear my country twang! (don't judge cause I used my Mac & well, my lips & voice aren't on the same wave length:)

Have a blessed weekend y'all & I will catch you all next Wednesday!!

  31. Yay! Welcome back! I've missed you and SWW. ;)

    So glad to hear your children are doing well in school. I had a wonderful schedule like that my senior year with college classes--I think going to them helped me be ready for school and know some of the college norms. It's great that you are feeling much better after surgery. I hope your DH is back home soon. :)
